This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

Simple Spanish fails the uniqueness criterion for eligibility, namely that it be sufficiently unique that it could not coexist on a more general wiki. Simple Spanish also does not have the required ISO 639-3 code except as a subset of Spanish, which is covered by the current Spanish Wikipedia. —Pathoschild 21:41:08, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
